“Living with Epilepsy.” “Let’s talk about it.

Good Afternoon Friends.

Hoping that each and every one of you are having a wonderful Wednesday.  This afternoon I have my earbuds in, listening to one of my favorite songs “Candle in the Wind” by an Iconic artist Sir Elton John, who also has epilepsy.  In the 1980’s Elton was diagnosed with epilepsy and the battle began.  This diagnosis did not define who he is as an artist, or prevent him from from selling over 250 million records worldwide.  He has won an Academy Award, Tony Awards, many Grammy Awards as well.  In fact he was Knighted as becoming only one of six RIAA Artists of the Century.  He also held a  “Candlelight Concert for Epilepsy Awareness” in 2012.   So, my friends, I highly suggest that you add Elton’s amazing song “Candle in the Wind”, to your playlist.
